Elsewhere, more shredded bark paths were laid in the Nature Reserve in Coed Gwilym Park by the pupils of Pen Y Bryn School. They also used the bark to mulch the plants in the garden bed behind the canoe store.  John Donovan, our Education Officer, is creating a great partnership between the Swansea Canal Society and the School.
